Notice for 2017/2018

DSA support for this academic year is changing. Support will now be funded partly by DSA and partly through the University. This will be explained more fully in the Study Needs Assessment report.

LogoExeter Access Centre

The Exeter Access Centre provides high-quality Study Needs Assessment Reports for all students who meet the criteria for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs).

Whilst we are based within the University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, our service is available to students applying to study with any Higher Education Provider (HEP) in the UK.

Our standards

We are a fully accredited Access Centre working within the DSA Quality Assurance Group framework to ensure that the standards of service to students are maintained.

We are also part of a National Network of Assessment Centres (NNAC). 

Assessment locations

The Exeter Access Centre provides face-to-face study needs assessments at our main centre in the Forum on the Streatham Campus. If you are returning for a Review, these shorter assessments may be conducted by telephone, by agreement.  We do not have any outreach venues.

If you have any specific requirements for your visit, such as accessible parking or a BSL sign language interpreter, please let us know so we can make the necessary arrangements.

Please see the DisabledGo website for information on the accessibility of buildings around the Exeter campuses. 

Our next appointment will be available in 4 working days.

If you have complex disability needs there may be a longer wait to ensure you are matched to the most appropriate assessor. This is in order to provide the best possible customer service.

Last updated on the 14th January 2019. Please email us on accesscentre@exeter.ac.uk or call us on 01392 723880 in the meantime if you would like to know our current availability.

My assessor was so friendly and made sure that I was relaxed and comfortable; as a result any nervous feelings I initially had were gone within a few minutes. She took detailed notes and seemed determined to get me the support I needed. She was brilliant. - Anonymous Student
